Records on your DNS that Growbots’ recommends to prevent SPAM:
Each provider has a slightly different way of adding these records. It is best to reference your email provider’s help articles to add these records correctly. The only record that needs to be configured for Growbots in any special way is the CNAME record. That extra step is connecting your subdomain to Growbots through the Growbots’ interface.
